Back to Karkand – See The Insane Progress From Battlefield 2 to Battlefield 3

1 min read


Battlefield 3 releases later this year and just from the trailers alone we are already as giddy as a bunch of schoolgirls before a weekend pyjama party.

The following video from EA Pwned (for all that is good in this world… someone please make them stop pronouncing it with the ‘P’ in front) shows interviews with DICE discussing the new engine and what it can do, but if you want some real proof of the magic, they show off the new version of one of their most famous maps of all time, Back to Karkand.

Check out the video and an image comparison, after the jump.

You are really going to want to see the image at full size, so don’t forget to click on it to make it big and pretty.

Awesome, no? Now if you want to see it all, check out the EA Pwned video below. The whole video covers Battlefield 3 and it’s actually worth watching for any fan of the series even if its packed with some lame jokes and strange presenters.

If you are only interested in the Back to Karkand part, you skip to the 6 minute mark. Here you go.
